    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Shimano A530 SPD Sport Road Pedalsis rated4.381out of5by21.
    Rated5out of5byfromAwesome pedals for my road bikeI bought these pedals because I wanted to be able to use my road bike for urban/campus riding, but also use it for long rides when I want to use the clips. These pedals rock! Takes some getting used to for kicking them into the right orientation when you need a certain side, but it becomes second nature. I bought mine in black and they are great.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat versatile pedalBecause I prefer to ride clipped in most of the time I use Shimano SPD pedals on all of my bicycles. I put a set of these on my Townie so that I could ride around our neighborhood with my grandchildren or do a quick trip to the store without having to put on my cycling shoes. I like these pedals so much that I'll be buying another pair to put on my touring bicycle.

    Rated3out of5byfromGood but.....Thought I would enjoy them more. Hard/struggled to unclip from for a first timer. Change to an easer style, same brand. Love the replacements suggested by REI. Uncliping was smooth and EASY. As I become more proficient at uncliping I intend to go back to this type and place the replacements on my other bike.

    Rated5out of5byfromBest touring pedal availableThese are the best pedals I've found for touring and commuting/city use. The cleat side is just like any Shimano SPD pedal. Works well with any MTB/touring style shoe and SM51 cleats. But the platform side is the real blessing. Unlike other Shimano dual-sided pedals (or generic knock-offs) which use a common "cage" with a thin/serrated edge, the non-cleat side of this pedal is a concave platform. This provides more support and is far easier on shoes, especially soft soled shoes like flip flops or sandals. When I'm on tour, I use the cleat side with my riding shoes. When I arrive at my destination, be it a campground or town/village, I can hop on the bike with flip-flops and be very comfortable on short trips around town. The one downside I've noticed -- and its just a trade off of the design -- is that the cornering angle possible when riding cleated is pretty shallow compared to typical road bike setups. You can't pedal thru turns while leaning moderately to aggressively or the wide platform will strike the ground. Not a big deal though . . . I don't ride crits on my touring bike.

    Rated5out of5byfromShimano A530 Pedals are awesome!These pedals are awesome! I am a newbie to clip in pedals and these offer the option of using one side to clip in and the other side to not. As I am learning how to ride with them it is nice to have the option. I love the clips, super easy to use and when I can't quite get it together, I just pedal with the other side until I can clip in. Super light weight. I love the extra power I get on the upstroke when I'm clipped in.

    Rated5out of5byfromA good, versatile pedalThese pedals work very well. I've used both the flat side for my commute and the SPD side for longer, spirited rides on my commuter bike. My wife recently used these pedals on a 60-mile ride with no issues.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat PurchaseReceived a new bike as a gift and wanted a versatile pedal I could use with cleats or without. These pedals were exactly what I was looking for. One side is for SPD cleats and the other side is a flat pedal for use without. Works very well for me for longer rides and quick, casual rides. Always be sure to adjust the tension so you can pop the cleats out quickly if you need to.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat PedalsI hadn't ridden a bike in over ten year, and had never used cleats. I use a Shimano SM-SH56 SPD Cleat Set, because the description of these cleats made them sound easy to release from the pedal. I'm new, and I don't really know if this is true. In any case, it was easy to get the hang of using the cleats. Following advice from other reviews, I loosened the cleat attachments on the pedals (very easy to do) and after a few close calls on the first ride (remember, I hadn't been on a bike in over 10 years), everything has been going smoothly. I ride frequently, 30 miles at a time. The start and end involves a few intersections with traffic lights, and I find it very useful to have the non-cleat side available for sudden starts to cross before the light changes back to red. Aside from all this, the aluminum construction seems very durable, and I will use these pedals on any bike I buy in the future.
